Although the concept of sin has religious connotations, it's a concept that society has implanted into our heads, regardless of religious affiliations. A sin can really be anything that tempts you to indulge in something that others might consider a little taboo. Musicians certainly know about falling for temptations, and have written these songs about sin to show off - or repent for - their naughty sides. 

It should come as no surprise that a song about Las Vegas made this list. AC/DC's "Sin City" references dancing girls, gambling, and the bright lights of the Vegas strip. Ozzy Osbourne penned "The Ultimate Sin," a song about taking advantage of other people's kindness. Elvis Presley's nickname should actually be the King of Sin. Presley's relationship with fourteen-year-old Priscilla Presley was certainly questionable, and his later addiction to drugs was definitely sinful.
